A temporary profile is used in Halo: Combat Evolved, Halo 2, Halo 3, Halo 3: ODST, Halo: Reach, and Halo 4, when players without a profile attempt to play Multiplayer or the Campaign. When a player without a profile signs into a game, he or she will be asked if they would like the use a temporary profile.
Temporary profiles cannot be saved (and cannot earn any achievements). Temporary profiles are issued random usernames, tags, and emblems. Names include "Bozo," "Sausage," and "Caboose."
List of Temporary Profile NamesEdit
- Halo: Combat Evolved

- Rooster Teeth used the temporary profile names to create the names for some of the characters in Red vs. Blue, most notably Donut and Caboose.
- If a profile and a temporary profile play splitscreen over Xbox Live, the temporary profile will have the same gamertag as the other profile, with a number added. If, for example, "MyGamertag" plays splitscreen with a temporary profile, the temporary profile will show up as "MyGamertag (1)."
